The Daughter’s Seduction. Feminism and Psychoanalysis

Ithaca, NY: Cornell University Press, 1982. 1st Edition. Octavo, publisher’s black cloth, spine gilt, pewter endpapers, top edge stained baby blue, original illustrated dust jacket.

First edition of comparative literature scholar Jane Gallop’s feminist introduction to Lacanian analysis, inscribed by her to front endpaper. Echoing the work of the British feminist writer Juliet Mitchell, the text explores the relationship between contemporary feminism and Lacanian psychoanalytic theory through analyzing key texts (by Irigaray, Montreley, Cixous, and Sade), to address topics such as sexual difference and power dynamics while both challenging feminist assumptions of Lacanian analysis and employing feminist perspectives to critique psychoanalytic theory. Inscription reads: 5/9/83 / For Fran, / Who’s made a lot of difference to me this year. / Love, Jane." Unclipped dust jacket with light sunning. Near fine. Item #9105
